Your employer has a number of obligations if you are injured at work, such as making sure you get the first aid you need, sending an Employer’s Initial Report of Injury (E1) form to the WCB within five days of being told about your injury and starting to determine if modified duties are available, which suit the restrictions of your injury.
If you are injured at work, your employer must:
No. You and your employer are legally required to report to the WCB all injuries that need medical attention, even if you don’t miss any time at work. Any agreement to not report an injury is illegal.
Care providers are also required to report to the WCB every work injury they treat.
All employer and injured worker information is confidential. Under the The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013, (the Act) you, your authorized representatives or, in the case of a death, your dependant(s) can get a copy of the claim record by making a request.
The Act also gives your employer the right to request a review of an appeal of a decision we have made on your claim and the right to receive information about our decision from your claim file for the purposes of an appeal. You will have to approve the release of this information to the employer by filling out a Consent to Release of Personal Information (TROI) form.
After the final waiting period of 15 business days, we will consider any objections you have brought to our attention. We will let you know of changes we have made and forward the information to your employer.
